Welcome to Nutritional Services

..

Canon City Schools provides almost 4,000 nutritious meals every day to students and staff. School meals are important to your child because they help develop sound nutritional habits by exposing students to a variety of foods. We offer many food choices and provide healthful fruits and vegetables daily on our STAR BAR.  In addition, the well-nourished student has better attendance, is more attentive and better behaved and has an increased energy level. All of these elements are tied to academic success.

 ..

Nutritional Services recognizes that when children are well nourished, their ability to learn improves. With the continuous emphasis on improving the student's ability to learn, the Canon City Schools Nutritional Services Department continues to make a serious commitment to providing delicious and well-balanced meals for your children. Breakfast and lunch are offered daily at an affordable price.

  ..

Menus are designed to provide choices preferred by our students while still meeting their nutritional needs. Students are encouraged to make wise choices and to try different foods.

 ..

Our department is comprised of caring people, most of them living here in our community. Please feel free to call the nutritional services supervisor in your child's school kitchen for assistance at any time.

 ..

Ourwebsite has been developed not only to better serve our community, but also to serve as an overview of our program. Whether you are searching for a particular menu or prices, programs and services,  helpful contact information, or you are just checking to see what is new, you should be able to find it right here at your fingertips!
